    Has anyone been to Rock Hound State Park near Deming Arizona?

    What is the best time of year to visit?

    Did you find anything?

         Gary, do you mean New Mexico? If so get a hold of Geolapidary Museum Rock Shop in Deming, NM. Phone # is (505)-546-4021 they are closed on Wed. They will be able to answer all your questions.            Ron

    I was there in late February 2014 and the mid March. I found a geode both times and someone had dug a hole so I panned some of the loose dirt and found a few -100 mesh specks.

    OOPPSS! Yes, I mean New Mexico. Major typo. I need to delete this topic and start over. Thanks for the comments. I am getting cabin fever from all the rain and bad weather in Texas and need to get out somewhere.

    Gary,

    Rock Hound State park by Demming NM, is a pretty good spot.  There are also many places around the area close by.  Silver City has a few areas that are BLM or Forest service with some state areas.  You can also do some hounding down around Hatchita area.  Locate some of the clubs in the area online they will be of help also.  Arizona has some designated BLM rock hound areas by Duncan and Safford areas.

    Glad to help if you head over into Arizona or the area.

     

    Jeff
